Foralin is an agricultural, nonindustrial, and very rich garden world with a near-ideal, utopian environment conducive to most sophonts.

  • As an agricultural world, this world is a near-ideal environment for producing quality foodstuffs of plant, animal, and other forms. Quality foodstuffs are a major export commodity for this world.
  • It requires extensive imports of outside technology to maintain a modern, star-faring society. Having to import most manufactured and high tech goods drives the price up for these items at this world. However, a rich world like this one can afford the cost of importation.
  • This is a rich world with a prosperous and thriving world economy.
  • Its economy and population are growing and living conditions are expected to incrementally rise barring outside forces. The world will grow even quicker when its industrial sector begins to develop.
  • It is a Non-Aligned world dominated by human sophonts located in the Foralin Subsector of Far Home Sector.

System Data[edit]

Apheraz System[edit]

The primary is Apheraz, a red giant star. It has a luminosity of 1194 Sols, a mass of 6.74 Sols, and a diameter of 179.49 million km – the corona of the star extends to 0.6 AU, within orbital position (III). The inner system consists of (V) a vacuum inner world, (VI) an exotic atmosphere radworld, (VII) an exotic atmosphere stormworld, and (VIII) a sparse stony planetoid belt – orbital positions (I) to (III) lie within the star and orbital position (IV) is empty. (IX) a large gas giant orbits within the habitable zone. (X) a ringed large gas giant, and (XI) a large gas giant form the outer system. Many of the worlds retain satellites.

Wuru-Foralin Subsystem[edit]

The companion is Wuru, an ordinary red main sequence star lying approximately 2,100 AU from Apheraz. It has a luminosity of 0.0334 Sols, a mass of 0.4574 Sols, and a diameter of 711,000 km. (I) Foralin orbits within the habitable zone and is designated the mainworld. (II) an exotic atmosphere stormworld, (III) a trace atmosphere iceworld, (IV-I) a small gas giant, and (IV-II) a small ice giant form the outer system. Many of the worlds retain satellites.

Lesso Subsystem[edit]

The far companion is Lesso, a tiny dwarf star lying approximately 7,550 AU from Apheraz. It has a luminosity of 0.00003 Sols, a mass of 1.11 Sols, and a diameter of 8,450 km. (I) a vacuum worldlet, and (II) a vacuum iceworld forms the outer system. neither world retains satellites.

Mainworld Data[edit]

(I) Foralin[edit]

(I) Foralin is designated the mainworld. It orbits Wuru at a mean distance of 0.18 AU (26.9 million km), within the habitable zone. It has an orbital period of 41 days 6 hours: it is tidally locked to Wuru. The axial tilt is 4 degrees. Foralin has a diameter of 9,040 km, a density of 7.31 g/cm³, and a surface gravity of 0.94 G. Tidal stresses generated by the gravitational pull of Wuru cause regular geological activity. Its atmosphere is rated as Dense, with a mean surface pressure of 2.03 bar and a composition of 80% nitrogen (N2), 19% oxygen (O2), and 1% argon (Ar), water vapor (H2O), carbon dioxide (CO2), ozone (O3), neon (Ne) and other trace gases. Approximately 63% of the surface is covered in oceans of liquid water: average tidal ranges exceed 0.9m. Mean surface temperature: 26°C. The climate is rated as Temperate-Warm and is static, with no seasonal changes during the local year. The atmosphere is very active and powerful weather systems driven by the star and the oceans surge across the globe.

Mainworld Geography & Topography[edit]

Total surface area: 257 million km², Water surface area: 162 million km², Land surface area: 95 million km².

  • Foralin is a Twilight Zone World.
  • The world experiences libration, which causes the star to move in the sky and periodically rise and fall above the horizon in the twilight region.

Native Lifeforms[edit]

Apheraz System[edit]

No world in the system is known to have native life.

Wuru-Foralin Subsystem[edit]

Foralin, the mainworld, has extensive, abundant native life, with complex organisms inhabiting every ecological niche. Their metabolic functions drive the process of atmospheric renewal. It is a lush and verdant world rich with life. The limitless wildernesses are dominated by herds of giant herbivores and the huge pack carnivores that feed on them. Many species are commercially hunted for meat, hides, and other usable parts.

No other world in the subsystem is known to have native life.

Lesso Subsystem[edit]

No world in the subsystem is known to have native life.

History & Background / Dossier[edit]

No information yet available.

World Starport[edit]

Foralin has a Class C Starport, an average quality installation which includes amenities including unrefined fuel for starships, some brokerage services for passengers and cargo, and a variety of ship provisions. There is a shipyard capable of doing maintenance and other kinds of repair. Ports of this classification generally have only a downport, unless this is a trade port or system with an hostile environment mainworld.

World Technology Level[edit]

Foralin possesses a Technology Level of TL–9.

  • Common Communication technologies for this TL include: Fiber optics and satellite communication and data networks.
  • Common Power Generation technologies for this TL include: Early fusion power.
  • Common Transportation technologies for this TL include:
    • Land: Ultra high-speed trains and early grav vehicles.
    • Water: High efficiency sailcraft, multihulled seacraft, improved artificial gears.
    • Air: Tiltrotorcraft, exotic VTOL's, PARWIG, and rocket-assisted suborbitals.
    • Space: SSTO spacecraft, early military spacecraft (System Craft), and interstellar STL starships
    • FTL: Prototype Jump Drive-1.

World Government[edit]

Foralin is governed by an Impersonal Bureaucracy. The leadership of the government is another form (democracy, dictatorship, oligarchy), but the bureaucracy dictates government policy and its execution. Government leadership is reduced to little more than figureheads and does not select the bureaucracy leadership or its members.
